, for example, on a base and there are multiple religions who want to use that chapel or sacred space then there should be no permanent religious symbol on the extearer or interor because it's used by others. and i would say not because i would like everyone to have lots of different views and-- but no, it's to protect the constitution, which is the government should not establish one religion over another, in this case, i think it's a good thing. if there are many different religious beliefs represented they should not establish one over the other. >> ainsley: what building is this? isn't it a chapel? >> they could use that sacred space for different groups. if you have a cross outside of the chapel used by many different religious groups, including jewish and muslim then you're saying this is just for christians. >> is the answer not to remove the cross, to have the inclusion of all religious symbols there, how difficult would that be. >> the policy is that there's no permanent symbols and then once the religious service is going on, put up crosses, crucifixes, whatever religious sy

that differentiate us, make us unique, whether it be gender or race or religion, all of these things fall aside when you're there putting the mission first and selflessly serving as that member of a team. i can tell you from my own fi t firsthand experience as well as the many, many people i've had the honor of serving with, whether in training or in a deployed setting, those things are not what's crossing your mind when you're operating. >> should there be jobs that are not open to women? i mean are there some positions that really women cannot do? >> i don't think so. i think that really you have to look at what are the qualifications, what are the standards necessary for a specific job that are already in place and opening those doors to anyone who has volunteered to serve our country, if they meet those standards, that should be the setting. i think we've heard from john mccain, for example. his concern about making sure that the high physical fitness standards are kept, and i agree. i think in some of these jobs that do require a great amount of physical fitness, those standards should not be
of religion. and so we have this enormous, tragic history that all of us confront from whatever our backgrounds are whether we're white, black, hispanic, asian, whether we're muslim, jew or christian. the notion that, in fact, in the words of a great writer who happened to win a nobel prize, william faulkner, he said the past is never dead and buried, it isn't even past. and i think that all of us are confronting constantly our history. we're confronting the history of slavery in this country. we're confronting the history and problems that arose as a consequence of colonialism. we're confronting those scars of violence and oppression and struggle and difficulty and hope not only on the larger canvas of history, but also within our own families. and for me it was not entirely obvious how, in fact, i was going to be able to integrate and pull together all those different strands in my life. so part of my challenge growing up was to figure out how do i function as someone who is black but also has white blood in me, how do i function as somebody who with is american and takes pride an
. i am speaking of that force which all of the great religions have seen as the supreme unifying principle of life. love is somehow the key that unlocks the door which leads to ultimate reality. this hindu-muslim-christian- jewish-buddhist belief about ultimate reality is beautifully summed up in the first epistle of saint john: "let us love one another (yes), for love is god. (yes) and every one that loveth is born of god and knoweth god. he that loveth not knoweth not god, for god is love. if we love one another, god dwelleth in us and his love is perfected in us." let us hope that this spirit will become the order of the day. we can no longer afford to worship the god of hate or bow before the altar of retaliation. the oceans of history are made turbulent by the ever-rising tides of hate. history is cluttered with the wreckage of nations and individuals that pursued this self-defeating path of hate. as arnold toynbee says: "love is the ultimate force that makes for the saving choice of life and good against the damning choice of death and evil. therefore the first hope in our
they were born, regardless of their religion or their sexual orientation. those principles will direct our course as we introduce our first ten bills today, a tradition we've had in the united states senate. that is the majority party introduces the first ten bills. as we mend our broken immigration system, strengthen our schools and rebuild our roads and infrastructure we look to those measures in the bills. we balance the right to bear arms with regard to every right of children. we will balance spending reductions with revenue from the wealthiest among us. those principles will ensure military members never struggle for employment. those principles must be our guide. not a single piece of important legislation can pass the senate or become law without the votes of both democrats and republicans. so we'll be willing to compromise and work with our colleagues across the aisle. unfortunately, a number of bipartisan bills passed the senate during the last congress that were never acted upon by the house of representatives. so this year the senate will revisit some of those legislative prior

security and they're worried that the iranian authorities are rather than talking religion, talking about political issues. and that makes it all that much more serious. bill: what is the situation for christians in iran, for them, amy? >> reporter: well, you know, bill, there are 300,000 christians in iran. many are armenian and assyrian. but it is evangelicals the converts who are under the most scrutiny. they have this network what they call house churches. increasingly according to sources here those networks are being infiltrated. and those are the christians who really are in trouble these days. they are being cracked down on. it is estimated hundreds of them are in jail. you may remember, the case of youcef nard nard, who was in jail for several years recently released. the his situation is tenuous. several journalists were arrested over the weekend believed to be an act of intimidation before the national elections in the country. bill: thank you, amy. we'll speak with the pastor's wife. her first television interview since her husband was sentenced. we'll get an interview with th
